IT IS DONE, IMPERIOUS LEADER: GALACTICA IS 40! On September 17th, 1978 "Battlestar Galactica" premiered on US television! Time, to remember one of the most expensive and most beloved TV shows of all times - and to celebrate another round BD! The show had state-of-the-art special effects, a bombastic soundtrack and most of all an excellent cast, myth, drama and adventure in a galaxy far away. Fortunately the production value was very high which ensured that the show does not look dated, 40 years later. Unfortunately many actors and creative heads behind the camera are unable to celebrate this special occasion, like the unforgettable Richard Hatch, the legendary John Colicos, Ray Bolger, Lloyd Bridges, Lew Ayres, Ray Milland, Edward Mulhare, George Murdock, Lorne Greene and of course Glen A. Larson who created many many more TV shows that have sweetened our childhood days. A toast to our victory over the Cylons!
